Hi Iím getting FTTC Fibre installed in October I understand we go back to the old days of having a separate router and modem.
My Dilemma is that I currently have my adsl router nicely tucked away in my office and I run a telephone extension a small distance 1 to 2 metres to the master socket in the hallway. My existing dsl router then plugs into the adsl filter at the end of the extension socket Unfortunately from what I have read with the new fibre we will be introducing an additional fibre modem
I notice from pictures the new fibre openreach modem has both a dsl socket and Ethernet (RJ45) socket - RJ45 connects the internal router to the fibre modem and the dsl connects the fibre modem to the master socket is this correct?
So I guess what Iím saying is a telephone extension cable to my office not suffice to place both the fibre modem and router in my office or must the fibre modem be next to the master socket?
Many thanks in advance
